Standard

Strength

Max Back Squat

Score: *195#

I put the asterisk because I got 185 & then tried for 205. I wasn’t able to get up but Coach Jon put 195# down for me because I was close & surely could have gotten it. Mostly this just means that I will use 195# as my base for percentages for the 4 week strength cycle we are beginning next week. My last PR was 190# so I’m fine with this. I’m excited to see how much I can improve over the cycle.

WOD

10 minute amrap

  • 5 burpees
  • 10 lateral bar hops
  • 15 push press

choose a weight that challenges you, but at the same time you can go unbroken. if you drop the bar that add 5 more burpees to the next round

Score: 4+6 RX

I used 55# but somewhere in the 3rd or 4th round I was completely unable to breathe. Stupid exercise-induced asthma. I’ve been struggling with allergies this season and it has now manifested itself as asthma, something I’ve never had before. Trying to decide if I need to see a doctor for an inhaler. Geez, turning 40 in another month and I’m falling apart like a cheap suit.
